Daniel Ortega: “Here We All Stay”

Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega said on Wednesday he will continue in office, in his first reaction to the demand of political and social sectors that demand his resignation and that of his wife and vice-president, Rosario Murillo, and the call for early elections.

During an FSLN rally on Mother’s Day, Ortega, in a speech to thousands of followers said, “Nicaragua belongs to all of us, we all stay here. Nicaragua is not private property of anyone.”

“The devil is destroying a country that had peace, a Nicaragua that was admired in the world, for its capacity for reconciliation,” said President Ortega.

Ortega ended his 40-minute speech by saying “Long live Nicaraguan mothers, may peace live.”

This is the first time that Ortega has appeared in public since May 16, when he participated in the first National Dialogue.

After Ortega’s speech, there were clashes. The violence continues into the night. By 9 p.m. reports of several deaths and dozens wounded by an armed attack in Managua that, according to witnesses, began in the area of baseball stadium Dennis Martinez, against thousands of protesters who participated in the march organized by the Mothers of April.
